On my MacBooks over Wifi, the HDD attached to the Airport does not mount in the same way as directly connected or even NAS drives. Rather than the drive, I get the Airport Extreme in the 'Shared' section of Finder. Selecting the Airport Extreme shows the drive as a folder, and opening that folder effectively 'mounts' it. Even then, the drive does not show as ...

I just discovered today that the original, 802.11g AirPort Express (Model "M9470LL/A" isn't supported by versions of AirPort Utility after 6.0 and that the last few versions of OS X aren't compatible with the older AirPort Utility (though I found this helpful workaround). I don't know if any other Apple routers have these issues — I have some other old ones ...

I finally found the problem. Quite inexplicably, it was caused by the latest update to Boom 2 (v1.2). This introduced an option to use the Boom Remote iPhone app. Even if you don't have the app, it's enabled by default in the interface. Disabling it solves all issues: There are plenty of other people are reporting the same thing on their forum, and ...

I have: 3 older airport Express 1 new 2nd Gen 1 apple TV The only thing I had to do was upgrade the Network card in the PC to 10/100/1000 and buy a gigabit switch.

Try looking in the System Preference/Network panel for your active network connection. Highlight the connection, click Advanced, then check the different tabs to see if any information is statically entered. Specifically, check under Proxies. Any sort of manual override under your account could be at fault.

To answer your first question, you hold control and option together and then double click on the Time Capsule in Airport Utility. On the summary page you will see a bunch of stuff, but under where it says "Version: XXXXX" you will see that it shows MAC addresses for all of the interfaces Secondly, the TC by default restricts backups to only computers that ...

Issues with Wi-Fi are notoriously difficult to diagnose. It's possible that there's increased traffic in the area for some untold reason, causing contention, and forcing the connection to fall to a lower MCS index (lower indexes deal better with interference, but result in lower performance, which is what you're seeing). Often the issues go away on their ...

Maybe someone else is using your internet? If your network is password protected, probably not. It could also be a virus, in which you should download an antivirus such as ClamXav(available in the app store).

As Rob says, "Default Host" is what you are looking for. The current version (as of June 2015) of the Airport Utilty app uses the following path: Open Airport Utility Select the Airport Click 'Edit' Click 'Advanced' Click 'DHCP and NAT' Click Default Host, and enter the IP address you want. Separately, you would probably also go into 'Reservations' on ...

Neither the AirPort Extreme 802.11ac nor the AirPort Time Capsule 802.11ac appear to support SNMP or syslog data to maintain or monitor these devices. You'd have to load some custom firmware or discover an older management tool that can convince them to configure either of those services. Nothing I can find from Apple shows that either functionality remains ...
